Life is Like a Box of Chocolates...OR Is That Really Bacon-Flavored Chocolate?

Vosges Haut-Chocolat Bacon ChocolateTRUTH: When I saw this bar of chocolate in the gourmet chocolate section at my local Fresh Market in Johns Creek, GA, I knew I had to take a picture of it. After all, no one would believe me if I told them I saw a bacon chocolate bar.

Then I realized I had to write a blog about it, too, because it was just too good to pass up. (My apologies if you find the correlation to real estate a bit of a stretch - just be entertained by the chocolate bar!)

Forrest Gump said, "Life is like a box of chocolates - you never know what you're gonna get." Real estate is like that, too.

You never know what your new clients will be like - will they be friendly or nasty, easy-going or picky, analytical or sentimental? The same goes for potential new listings.You show up for the listing appointment - will it be outdated wallpaper or freshly painted neutral colors, chipped laminate countertops or sparkling new granite, well-maintained or cluttered?

Have you ever sampled the chocolates in your Whitman's Sampler - taken a tiny nibble to make sure it's a flavor you like instead of one you don't? Do you ever wish you could do that with your clients - take a little nibble, take them for a test-drive, before committing to them? (After all, some of them do that with us, right?)

Life is like a box of chocolates - I'm just not sure I want to take a bite out of the bacon-flavored one. But perhaps that's part of the excitement of being a REALTOR® - you really never know what you're gonna get!

By the way, if you're interested in trying this bizarre chocolate bar, you can find it online on the Vosges Haut-Chocolat website (those of you in Chicago, New York City and Las Vegas can visit their boutiques). Mo's Bacon Bar is actually listed as #2 on their Top 10 Best Sellers list, which kind of makes me want to try it now! Other interesting flavors include:

  • deep milk chocolate with extra virgin first-press olive oil + dried kalamata olives
  • dark chocolate with ginger + wasabi + black sesame seeds
  • deep milk chocolate with sweet Indian curry + fresh coconut.

I bought the Red Fire Bar: Mexican ancho & chipotle chillies + Ceylon cinnamon + dark chocolate (great with red wine!).
